About the property

Renovated 17th Century Townhouse, With Patio And Roof Terrace

The house was originally one of Spain's first public granaries in the 17th century. Now completely renovated, with three double bedrooms plus one spare room with two single beds, it sleeps eight easily. Located in the heart of the old town, it's a few minutes walk from the main square and local bars and restaurants. Many of the processions of local fiestas pass directly in front of the house, providing a great place to watch the festivities. Perched on top of a limestone cliff, Arcos de la Frontera is one of the most striking villages in Spain. Its whitewashed houses and stone churches wind upwards into the old town, stopping abruptly as the sheer cliff face dramatically plunges down to the valley of the river Guadalete below. Arcos has some of the most spectacular fiestas running throughout the year, a traditional Spanish experience: flamenco, sherry, tapas and long warm evenings. There is also a nearby golf course, and lake where you can sail.

Exceptional! 5/5 -
(10 traveller reviews)



  • 5 of 5

This amazing house, located in the heart of old Arcos, was the perfect base for enjoying the pleasures of the region. We easily drove to Grazalema, Jerez, and Sevilla from there. But to our delight, our two daughters (ages 28 and 32) said that what they really wanted to do was to spend their time relaxing in this splendid space. It is beautifully renovated and well maintained. Because we arrived on a chilly March afternoon, the housekeeper had started a fire to warm us up. The whole experience was delightful, and our family all agreed that we'd love to return for a longer stay very soon.

Arcos is a beautiful hill town with gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside; however, visitors with mobility issues should be aware that the streets are narrow, and cars must be parked in the lower town, necessitating a 10-15 minute walk (or cab ride) up to the house.

Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying here and will definitely book again. Beautiful house with lots of space and everything you need. Right in the centre of things, so lots of restaurants and bars are only minutes away. Great customer service from the owner. Highly recommended.

Une demeure de caractére très paisible!

Nous avons apprécié la localisation de cette location dans le vieil Arcos de la frontera à deux pas de la place del Cabildo. La maison est très spacieuse avec de hauts plafonds et bénéficiant d'une terrasse avec un point de vue sur la plaine et d'une cour intérieure raffraichissante. Les chambres et sanitaires sont décorées avec beaucoup de gout. Enfin la cuisine est bien équipée et dispose de tout le nécessaire pour cuisiner pour huit personnes. Merci à Mark pour cette belle location que nous recommandons sans hésiter!

excellent beautiful spacious property

  • 5 of 5

We spent two wonderful weeks in this stunning property. It was our third time back. To me comfort and cleanliness are important and this property always delivers. The bonus is the attention to detail in how beautifully this property has been renovated, well maintained, and the space ...so my husband, son and friends were not on top of each other! Then there are the amenities from the well decked out kitchen, bathrooms, laundry room, wifi, TV, lots of sheets, and towels, the roof top terrace for hot evenings! Not to mention a wonderful housekeeper available to come and clean on request! This is before we talk of the lovely setting of Arcos itself, with restaurants within walking distance, great churches/cathedrals to explore, and beaches a short drive away. We will be back!

Geat house, magical hill town.

  • 5 of 5

House better than website suggests. Owner organised perfectly. Superb local bars and restaurants. Go! And do take day trips to Grazalema in the mountains to swim under vultures in the wonderful village pool, and to see Seville on a Seebybike guided tour, and to choose your own fish and have it cooked in Cadiz market. But don't plan to do too much. Arcos will stop you dead so spend most days there reading books, and letting Manolo in the Meson in the nearby square serve you superb food and drink day after day and give you a bill way, way lower than you could ever predict. The bookshelves in the house are well stocked too. Me, my wife, the teenage children all needed to just stop and have time together. This met our needs perfectly.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

This accommodation is just amazing. The house is huge, almost a palace. Historical site, tasteful decoration, fully equiped, luxury quality. It is perfect for a group of friends, for several couples or for a big family. Either for summer, due to the patio and the lovely terrace upstairs, or for winter as the heating looks very modern and the living-room has a nice fireplace.

We will go back, for sure.
